Album of the Week - A Divina Comédia ou Ando Meio Desligado by Os Mutantes - Sep 1

Dug Deep hosts this week's edition of Album of the Week, featuring A Divina Comédia ou Ando Meio Desligado, the third album by Brazilian rock band Os Mutantes. The album was originally released in 1970. The title translates to The Divine Comedy or I Am a Bit Disconnected. "I am a bit disconnected" in this sense means "I feel a little spaced out." The album as a whole is characterized by a mix of psychedelic and religious imagery. Os Mutantes were influenced by a blend of 60s rock -- the Ventures to the Beatles, whose Sgt. Pepper expanded their understaning of what recorded music could achieve. Os Mutantes were subversive, fun, poetic, melodic, playful, noisy, and much more. They also became a part of the Tropicalia movement in Brazil, along with Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, and Tom Ze. Tune in Sep 1 at 5 pm PT for a strange musical journey on Album of the Week.
